Subject: Tragic
Very impacting video. Criticizing Mr. Morrison's composure is distasteful. He wasn't reporting from a desk somewhere and didn't arrive on the scene after the crash. He was there to simply to report on the ship lumbering in and instead witnessed people being burned alive. Don't bust his chops for having compassion for his fellow man.

Great video and audio quality of this classic footage.
Herb Morrison really loses it. His incoherent reaction to the explosion although classic; sets a standard for journalists on how NOT to react to catastrophe. The entire craft was engulfed in 34 seconds. Amazingly, 62 passengers out of the 97 aboard survived; however it ended the era of commercial passenger service in rigid, lighter-than-air crafts. It is a shame because the are so beautiful.
